Closet Cuteness Overload

The last four nights of my life, I've literally been dreaming about our daughter's forthcoming wedding. The best I can figure is that it's got to be because I still haven't absolutely decided which dress and shoes I'm going to wear as mother of the bride.....or what to do with my hair. The dreams also include friends and family who are coming to town. That's a happy part of the dream. Maybe tonight I'll actually focus on what I'm wearing in the dream and let my dream decide for me what I will wear. Ah, first world problems.

We've had an unlimited supply of guests stay with us in the last month with our listings on airbnb. It's work, work, work, but having people in the house all the time revives me, in spite of the extra house work. That reminds me, I've got some sheets to wash and a bed to make.

In the porch bedroom, Reese and I have been working together to turn this former bookcase into a usable space to hang clothes, aka, a pseudo closet.

The guy at Sherwin Williams matched the paint EXACTLY so there is a true seamlessness to the whole bookcase/closet. I love the little cubbies on the right.
Here is is all finished -- cute little space to hang a few clothes, cute basket for fresh towels. That's an old wooden spool on the end of a makeshift closet dowel rod to keep the clothes from falling off the end, also freakishly cute. And, of course, those cubbies couldn't be any cuter.

And yes, I realize that most people don't get excited about closets,  and probably most people don't think of closets as being cute, but hey, I realized that I'm not like most people a long time ago. And anyway, little pleasures in life make for big happiness.

On top of everything, I've painted a little bit, too, but will post about that tomorrow or the next day.

Now *that's* a relaxed painting stance right there - leg thrown over bed end. Excellent work!

I love the frame on the closet. Your home is just so charming. I think it is the cutest closet ever! Mr. Collins went on and on about his closet in Pride and Prejudice. This one is cute....his was not....

Fun! And I love the idea of you and Reese running a B&B. I've often thought that would be fun one day. That is, until I remember that I am a complete introvert and would need to hide from the people who were staying with us. Shameful, I know. ;)

Thank y'all!
Shanna - You are so naturally kind that no one would notice if you were hiding in your own home.
Kristin - I don't remember that scene at all. Maybe it's best that I don't.
Michelle - It's the only way I could fit in the tiny space between the wall and bed. :/
